This print is much sharper and cleaner than the existing IA copy. Heartbroken looser in love Olly joins the French Foreign Legion to forget, and of course he drags along Stan who forgets everything. One of the funniest L&H feature-length comedies with great slapstick routines and magical moments like Stan playing "The World is Waiting for the Sunrise" on a bedspring while he and Olly are waiting to be shot at dawn. A must-see for all fans of the eternally hapless duo. Directed by...

The Oath and the Man was directed by D W Griffith in 1910. Griffith is often out of his depth when he goes far back in history. Herein he trivializes the French revolution. Before you criticize him, though, remember he was making two or three of these a week. If you get a few laughs, you will be laughing at it not with it
